and more taxes? or is our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and more freedom? i believe in mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i vote
are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature, it is roughly equivalent, 4000 percen $. quit talking about harry reid or what ever is. i was not in the senate. i think it is atrocious we do not have a budget. that is the reason we do not have a budget is because both political parties refused to sit down and refuse to solve the problems. there is excellent documents out there, but i believe we have need a balanced budget amendment because the and the way congress will balance the budget is that they have to. that is the path forward for our people and for our country. we need to be strategic. congressman berg voted for sequestration, a disaster, a disaster for defense and jobs trip we need to do everything we can to do this the right way, and that is t
to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was there. they were talking about this election because they know their future is is riding on four more days. if i could talk to the women in the audience. and i see there are just a few women here tonight. you know the democrats have talked a lot lately about this war on women. let me tell you what i think the war on women is. for the first time in 17 years we have more women living in poverty. we have nearly 6 million women unemployed today and over 400,000 of those women have lost their jobs in the last four ye
to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and ther
. >> joe biden responded to romney this way today. >> called it territorial tax. it's the bain way. it means if you're going to build a factory you go find -- this is the fact. you go find a currentory with the lowest tax rate and the cheapest wages. build it there, pay those taxes and you never have to pay a penny in tax in the profit you make when you bring them back home. why would anybody build -- why would anybody build a factory here? ladies and gentlemen, the experts point out, that new territorial tax will create 800,000 jobs. all of them abroad. i'm not making up, all of them abroad. 800,000. i found it fascinating at their convention when governor romney said the first thing i will do when i'm elected president, i will take a jobs tour. it's going to have to be a foreign trip. >> joining me now ezra klein and eugene robinson. it was a strong week for the conspiracy theoryists about the unemployment numbers. first the theory was that the president would use hurricane sandy and its effects possibly on washington, d.c. as an excuse for delaying the jobs report until after th
into the rainy day fund and the same time reduce taxes. that has been the biggest job creator in ohio that we have seen a in the nation. i think these programs do work. i think the governors are leading the change efforts in this country and have to continue to do that. the federal government has been an impediment regulations in the have prohibited them from trading jobs that are necessary in this country to push our economy and to also improve the economy over where it has been over the last four years. host: we have been talking about the jobs numbers that are coming out today. here are the october numbers. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8% from september. in issuing 171,000 jobs added in october. this is according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick and it was a down tick the month before, and but unemployment is basically staying around 8%. if you count the people who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are un
wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his taxes. it's going to go over horribly in new jersey. doesn't look good, period. it was christie much all people who said, you know what, mitt romney should release his taxes. we've seen this a few times from christie. his brand is dependent on being seen as a bipartisan guy. you can't do anything in this situation except working cooperatively and praising president obama if you're going to be a bipartisan guy. >> let me go to another point here. while i'm talking about romney, steve, he very clearly said that fema -- last year he said fema could be privatized or handled by the states. today he wouldn't even answer questions about it. "the new york times" editorial board slammed romney for his position on fema today writing disaster coordination is one of the most vital functions of big government, which is why mitt romney wants to eliminate it. does mr. romney really believe financially strapped states would do a better job
, first of all, the president's tax increases are going to hit our economy just like they are going to hit ohio very hard. two-earner families are going to get hit hard and our small businesses will get hit hard. we have a big small tech industry and the tax increases will put our small businesses in jeopardy at the same time it -- >> let me interrupt you here -- virginia unemployment though is among the lowest in the country at 5.6%, so how will you combat that? >> well, virginia's unemployment is low because we've observed what president obama didn't and did the absolute opposite. we cut spending. we cut taxes. we made jobs our number one focus which is why we're one of the number one places to do business, number one place for jobs, but, again, just like governor kasich and the folks here, we need a president who will work with us, not work against us, and that's exactly -- we can't afford all the taxes from obama care, from the president wants to increase taxes at the same time in virginia. he's going to cut up to 200,000 defense jobs which in virginia are a key thing, not just for our
, that's a more efficient use of tax dollars. >> cenk: michael there is no such republican plan. the only plan that exists is to cut fema. there is no plan to add money to the local levels. >> i'm not here to defend that. or argue it. i'm here to tell you from -- yeah, i'm a republican and yes i'm a partisan. here's how it really works and what we really ought to be doing. >> cenk: michael one last thing. if you're a voter throughout and you're worried about these disasters and they seem to be happening at a quicker pace now and one guy seems to have handled things fairly well and says i'm going to continue to do that and another guy says i don't really even believe in fema at the federal. >> eliot: and i don't have a plan to make anything better at the state or local. >> eliot: so good luck to you. as a voter which guy would you go for? >> look, i don't think that romney's rhetoric really is that. he may think that we need more efficiently or spend their money and i think we should. i think to the extent we c
. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a d
reduced taxes, and eliminate the death tax in ohio. the has been the biggest job trend in ohio and anywhere else in the nation. i think the governors are leading the change effort in this country, and have to continue to do that. but the federal government has been an impediment, in many cases, through its regulations and its headwinds. many in the state have predicted them from creating the jobs necessary in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are
of the patriotism. you are not getting money to real producer to get jobs to market. when we pay taxes we are taking capt cament away and not helping the economy. >> we are talkug in the plan, it is period admits it would happen quay. we are buying you didn't build that economy . a president who sneers because you think you are so smart you can do it on your own and it is the idea of letting the government do it. >> and rick, we have seen it with the wind mills and it didn't work out. >> it is faulty. if you are going to build a building that you are renting space in for 75 to 100 years, do you amortize that. >> rick, rick, rick, the point is. the windmill program and started out with 7,000 jobs and it hasn't expand they have 300 billion and it is shrink not growing. >> those are two different pointings. >> not at all. it was part of the stimulus plan. >> they pointed out something. she's right. 12 million jobs no matter what. and governor romney -- >> and you are talking about an entirely different issue. >> not at all. >> it was part of the stimulus plan, rick, quickly though. >> it is not the sam
. and when he had his tax releases released, that showed that he was more generous than any of the other candidates, then obama himself. host: wanda, thank you. anyone else who wants to watch mitt romney, you can see him tonight on c-span. we will be airing his appearance and the romney-ryan tour in west chester, ohio at 7:30. you can catch up with about on c-span and c-span radio. i should note that obama will be holding a campaign rally in hillard, ohio at 10:20 this morning. a contest that on c-span and c- span radio. the paper today focusing on those swing states as we know -- the tribune -- the washington bureau notes that florida is a renewed focus in this election, at this point with polls now a dead heat. romney campaigned in florida, returned wednesday for rallies and tampa, miami and jacksonville. he is expected over the weekend to go back. for obama, victory in florida is a prize. for romney, it is a necessity. debates about whether romney can carry ohio or other midwestern battleground states become moot without a win here, experts say. the "new york times" focuses on pennsyl
's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at end of the year. we have the sequester looming. that wouldn't be the right way to do thing, takes a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. after the election both democrats and republicans say this is something the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. >> congresscomwoman if the president wins will they have to budge to raise taxes for the super wealthy to take care the debt? >> i think it's interesting to listen to his comments. basically the president's ideas on how to deal with an economy are an empty binder, if you will. we have brought forward item after item and suggestion after suggestion and bill after bill. we've passed bipartisan legislation in the house, and the senate won't take it up. what we need to do is make certain that we extend the bush tax cuts. we also want to go about closing some of the loopholes and primarily we have to cut federal spending. federal spending is completely out of control and making some cuts into this baseline so that you're actually r
, perhaps, in damages. that's an extreme weather tax that's going to have to be paid rather than trying to avoid the worst consequences, which would be a much better pathway. >> there are other politicians who have brought this up. let me play a couple clips from the last few days. >> anyone who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns i think is denying reality. i would like to say that this is probably the last occurrence we will have. i don't believe that. >> what is clear is that the storms that we've experienced in the last year or so around this country and around the world are much more severe than before. >> so if this is just the start, if it's going to be more of the same, what is your priority short term, and what do we need to be looking at long term? >> well, the american people, they're concerned about mother nature. the republicans, mitt romney, they're concerned about the oil companies that are largely fueling the independent expenditures which are going into this presidential race. this frames the election on tuesday very well. on the one hand, mitt romne

to have an intermediary, although you can choose to. there is tax relief, how so? >> that is a question. in terms of tax relief, there are questions as to whether the legislators were going to reach out and provide tax benefits for businesses that have been affected by the disaster. historically we have not seen that, but it is being discussed. gerri: free legal services to be available from fema. is that typical? >> it is. the federal government reaches out and tries to do what i can't help small businesses. that is available from the government, where you can get those types of services. gerri: the cdc will have some clean-up tips. is that on their website. >> absolutely. you can go to cdc and get those helpful tips as well. gerri: i know people tonight are sitting at home talking about what can i do, what can i do right now to help get this back up and running? would you say to people who are looking for that disaster plan? >> you need to assess the damage, assess the damage i like to your existing business, but project going forward with this will do to your local economy, particula
was that he favors a progressive tax policy, taxing those at the very highest rungs of income a little more to provide a little more help to those on the bottom rungs. "the des moines register" has now abandoned that as a reason for choosing a president. the editorial board has abandoned it in favor of this lie. there is not a lot of difference between the two candidates' short-term economic plans. four years ago, one of the biggest reasons "the des moines register" gave for endorsing president obama was expanding health insurance coverage to more americans will lessen the threat that illness will bring financial ruin. four years later, health insurance is not mentioned in their editorial endorsing the man who promises to repeal the obama expansion of health insurance that "the des moines register" advocated. another important reason cited four years ago in endorsing president obama was the supremely important reason of supreme court justices. obama promises to appoint justices with an expansive view of constitutional rights and equal justice. mccain's appointments more likely would continu
federal taxes to accommodate that cut. the states would then have to raise taxes in order to pay for the replacements for what fema used to do. taxation on the average homeowner or individual -- >> cut taxes so the localities have to raise taxes. >> that's right. >> any way the tax is going to go down. the other scenario, say the states try to replicate what fema does, that's extremely inefficient because what fema can do is keep a lot of resources in place to target wherever the disaster goes. if every state has to act like sandy is going to hit them every time. >> right. >> that's fantastically inefficient and someone like romney ought to know that of all people. >> a lot is give money to states. there's a level of the game here. >> that is what they do. the big obviously the cops and e ems and firefighters are out there, not federal employees for the most part. >> that's right. >> and those are local workers who like are out there, you know, doing the work first. >> ezra, we know if the sequesters go into place, fema loses $878 million, that's a lot of money although we don't
of taxes. everybody's been talking about these swing states as if the tail can wag the dog. somehow if you win the swing states, you affect the whole rest of the country in doing so, when that's the residue. but if you spend all your advertising money and all your grassroots, all your social media, and you focus it all on ohio, that doesn't help you win in pennsylvania. it doesn't help you in minnesota or michigan. i'm wondering whether they got the thing wrong, possibly, the obama people, by putting all their faith in winning those seven states, or most of them. what do you think? >> i think that because of the electoral college, elections, presidential elections have to focus on swing states and have to focus on these emerging purple states, because as it turns out, the elections sometimes do hinge on them. this election does seem to hinge on these particular swing states. the reason why the polling is so confusing, chris, is because sometimes national polls don't take into effect the fact that we have an electoral college, don't take into effect that some of these swing states will be s
. and it will be more of the same. mitt romney has no plan for taxes. he can't be direct on that. he has no plan when it comes to repealing obama care and what he's going to replace it with. and what about immigration? which in these last few weeks hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention. he has no plan for america. and now he's going to be the guy who's going to reach across the aisle? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. who do you trust to work with the other side? text "a" for president obama, text "b" to mitt romney to 622639. always to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining me tonight, karen finney, msnbc political analyst and former communications director of the dnc. karen, good to have you with us tonight. >> good to see you, ed. >> this is -- this is a rather interesting closing argument that mitt romney is making that he's going to be the guy that's going to reach across the aisle. when that really is the last thing his party wants him to do. how's this going to work out? >> also you know what, ed, i think
, the fiscal cliffs. when we get a solid policies that's predictable the economy grows. and when we have tax reform we get tax rate downs that estimate-- stimulates incentives to hire people t really is basic economics. that why this is tragic. applying basic economie economies-- economics we could do a lot better. >> brown: austan goolsbee, dow want to comment on what the president you work for has done. >> i will just say is we can agree on the basic economics but i think professor taylor has his history a little backward on that. in the 1990s bill clinton raised exactly the high income tax rates that barack obama wants to return the rates to. and the 2000s which he did not mention when george bush followed the policies very similar to what mitt romney is proposing, they actually added more than 1 million fewer private sector jobs if george bush's first term than president obama has under his first term so i really do not think that the basic economics or the history says that just going back to deregulation and high rate-- high income rate cuts is the thing that leads to growth. >> brown:
